This is the 7th and final installment of our Queensland holidays. On the day before we depart, we made a short stop at the Australia Zoo. Coming from Singapore where we have such an outstanding zoo, I had initially wanted to skip this attraction altogether! Thank God we didn’t! The Australia Zoo is big on conservation, making it such an amazing place for the little ones to discover the rich Australian wildlife.
Here one can cuddle a koala, hand-feed Asian Elephants, walk with a Sumatran Tiger and watch a crocodile launch from the waters edge. The Zoo is the brainchild of the famous ”Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, who died on 4th September 2006 in a freak snorkelling accident at the Great Barrier Reef.
We spent a fruitful afternoon watching the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors show at the Crocoseum, visiting the Tiger Temple and AsiaElephant habitat. We found the Animal Wildlife Adventure Show educational. The zoo keepers highlighted some world’s conservation issues and taught the kids how to protect the animal kingdom. During the show, we can incredible giant snakes, majestic elephants, colourful, soaring birds and prehistoric big Saltwater Crocodiles!
